Proposal development

Our experienced team will provide expert guidance and feedback throughout the proposal development stage, helping researchers craft a compelling and competitive application. We will assist in structuring the proposal, and ensuring alignment with MSCA requirements.


We organize a MSCA Day with webinars conducted by external experts to reflect and clarify what it takes to write a successful PF Fellowship proposal through live discussions. The training also includes 24/7 access to video tutorials structured in 3 parts: Excellence, Impact, and Implementation - following each section of the grant template.

Networking and collaboration opportunities

We facilitate connections between researchers, both within our research centre and through our extensive network of international collaborators. By fostering collaborations, we aim to enhance the research potential and interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, promoting innovation and excellence.

Administrative Support

Our dedicated administrative team provides assistance with the administrative tasks associated with MSCA fellowships, including budget planning, contract management, and compliance with grant requirements. We strive to streamline the administrative process, allowing researchers to focus on their scientific pursuits.

Our MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship Support Service is driven by a commitment to nurturing talent, fostering international collaboration, and promoting groundbreaking research. Join us on this transformative journey and unlock your full potential as an MSCA postdoctoral fellow.

"The fellowship provides me the opportunity to join the world-class research group on Earth Observation and Global Change Ecology. I have full access to high-performance resources and Profs. Peñuelas and Verger help me open new research lines (photosynthetic phenology, high spatio-temporal resolution biophysical parameter retrieval from EO data)."

Project: Stoic

"What I liked the most of working at CREAF was the good atmosphere and the enriching relations with my colleagues, which resulted in good friendship and several fruitful collaborations. Working in CREAF also represented for me an open door to new job opportunities, such as the position as an assistant professor that I just got now."

"It was a great opportunity to lead an independent project and to ask novel questions within the forest ecology field. CREAF was the best place I could choose: a welcoming and supportive environment where I was continuously exposed to multidisciplinary and cutting-edge science and nourished by exchanges with colleagues."

The MSCA support service of CREAF is part of the Severo Ochoa “ULandscape” funded in 2019 by the Agencia Estatal de Investigación of the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation to support Research Centres of Excellence.
